Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • zim-desktop-wiki

    Main repository of the zim desktop wiki project

    I don't have experience with those programs, but I've used Zim before for similar purposes to great success. It's a framework for editing txt files that allows markup, embedded images, hyperlinks between pages, etc. It runs entirely offline, but you can sync it between computers with any sort of filesharing system (I kept mine in a Google Drive file, for instance)

  • TiddlyWiki

    A self-contained JavaScript wiki for the browser, Node.js, AWS Lambda etc.

    I always thought of Obsidian Portal as a kind of wiki. Maybe you can use something like TiddlyWiki. It's a simple wiki you can install on a USB thumb drive or locally. I used it several years ago for planning out a campaign once and it worked pretty well. Haven't used it in a long while though.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
